Introducing Senreve Handbags

Categories:Other Brands

Back in February, we covered 10 brands to watch for 2017 and Senreve was on the list. Before that, I hadn’t heard much about this San Francisco-based brand, and that’s not surprising—Senreve is only eight months old. (I remember the brand’s age because it’s the same as Millie’s age!) In its short life, Senreve has already made its way into the hearts of many, myself included, and I’ve been talking with the brand to learn more about their designs.

Though based in San Francisco, Senreve bags are handcrafted in Italy by Tuscan artisans with 100% Italian leather. Senreve artisans have worked with top luxury brands for more than a combined fifty years, and it shows: the bags are incredibly well-made, the leather is sturdy yet supple and structured yet lightweight, and it’s also both durable and water-resistant.

When it comes to the final product, after talking to the founders multiple times, it stood out that one of their focal points is usability of their bags. Each bag, each compartment and each measurement is made with purpose. The idea behind the line is that a woman shouldn’t have to choose between a bag that looks good and one that works well.

crossbody in blush – $495

The exterior of each bag is clean, logo-free, and sleek while the interior is impeccably made and planned out as well. The pale blue stain-resistant microsuede interior is the perfect color to find all of your items (I find that black interiors are so hard to hunt around in). Many bags that have microsuede lining wind up being heavy, but these bags are far from that. Though the leather exterior and the microsuede interior seem like they could leave you with a cumbersome bag, it is quite the opposite. And the interior is all about usability and functionality. My favorite bag from the line, the Senreve Maestra, has an interior laptop compartment that fits my 13″ MacBook Pro perfectly. As far as the interior goes, there are 7 different compartments, including the padded laptop sleeve with a snap closure, and the other pockets can easily hold your other necessities in their own area.

maestra in creme – $895

The Senreve Maestra is my favorite of the bunch, and the company will soon be releasing a Mini Maestra as well. Each bag can be worn a variety of ways, including as a satchel, tote, crossbody, or backpack. I’m not a huge backpack gal (though in my mind, I’d like to be), but I’ve seen plenty of photos of girls carrying this bag as a backpack and it looks great. I love that the long strap is adjustable and I easily can carry this bag cross-body, which works really well while holding Millie. The design is simple and really attractive.

Senreve sent me the cream Maestra, and I’ve been using it for a week now and am looking forward to seeing how it works for me and holds up—light colored bags scare me about color transfer, but Senreve assures me their bags have been tried and tested! The Maestra is versatile and feminine, offered in a variety of colors and two types of leather: Pebbled or Mimosa (Mimosa reminds me of LV Epi Leather). The size is ideal for someone who is on the go and needs to carry a lot and have a functional (yet stylish) tote. Often, when a bag is trying to be functional, it winds up looking overly work-like, and that isn’t what working women are always looking for. Most women I talk to want a bag that is ladylike, modern, and easy-to-use, and this bag gets a check in each box.

doctor bag – $895

There are other bags and accessories as well, including the Doctor Bag, Voya Tote, Crossbody, Bracelet Pouch, Envelope Clutch, Card Wallet and Caddy. The Doctor Bag has an East/West shape, but also can be worn boxy by folding in the gussets at the sides. The Crossbody is a three-compartment bag that is good for weekends and nights out – cool thing about the Crossbody is there’s a removable bracelet pouch that you can unsnap and use by itself! The Envelope Clutch can hold a laptop and slide into the Maestra Bag or be carried separately. The two leathers offered, Pebbled or Mimosa, are both extremely durable and lightweight. The Pebbled leather has a softer finish (but is scratch resistant) while the Mimosa leather gets its long-grain texture from the treatment of machine pressing. Each bag and design is straightforward yet stands out. Prices range from $95 to $895.

envelope in pebbled coral and mimosa bordeaux – $245

I was introduced to this brand at the perfect time, just as I was feeling like a new designer needed to break into the handbag world. As handbag lovers, we have so many options when it comes to established brands, but I am always excited to see a new brand that I believe has great products and can make a space for itself in the market. The founders of Senreve are handbag lovers like us and wanted to fill a void they saw in women’s closets. When talking to them, I can hear their passion for their craft, and it was evident when I saw the bags in person. This might be our first in-depth look at the brand, but it won’t be the last. Shop all Senreve bags via the company’s website.

Thieves Swipe $140,000 Worth of Handbags from Louis Vuitton Store in Brazil

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton debuted an expansive Cruise 2017 collection in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, earlier this week, but news out of the South American country wasn’t all positive for the French luxury brand. According to theNew York Times, the Vuitton store in Rio’s upscale Ipanema neighborhood was robbed Tuesday morning, only two days after the attention-grabbing show.

Reports indicate the thieves made off with over $140,000 in handbags in the early morning hours; no products from other categories were mentioned. For reference, that’s about 36 of the brand’s popular City Steamer bags, which retail at $3,850 for the medium size is smooth leather.

Brazilian authorities did not stipulate which bags were taken, but Vuitton had released a handful of Cruise 2017 bags for general purchase immediately after the show on Saturday. The bags are only available online in the US, but Vanessa Friedman of the NYT speculates that local excitement and attention over the show may have influenced the robbers, and the occasion certainly could have made a timely hit more attractive.

If you see any Louis Vuitton bag available from Brazilian sellers with prices that seem too good to be true, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Will your next handbag be a work of art? Marc Quinn’s hyperrealist art can now be found on Lady Dior handbags

Categories:Other Brands

Dior by Marc Quinn (2)

Last week, Dior celebrated two important events, the launch of their home label and the opening of their four story London shop. The store is Dior’s largest in all of the UK, and retails ‘women’s and men’s universes, leather accessories, jewelry, timepieces, the children’s collections and Baby Dior, with the exclusive addition of the first Dior HOME.’ To celebrate this milestone store opening, Dior will unveil a limited-edition selection of iconic Lady Dior bags and small leather accessories that have been reimagined by the artist Marc Quinn.

Quinn has breathed a new life into iconic Dior pieces by transposing his hyper real artwork onto the French brand’s classic handbags. The artist’s well known works make Dior’s bags into dramatic accessories.

Dior by Marc Quinn1
The Lady Dior “Fossil Record” bag. The floral motifs represent flowers that are eternally trapped in a state of perfect full bloom. The concept references the desire of man to totally control nature.

Dior by Marc Quinn (3)
Bags with a bright blue iris from Quinn’s series ‘We Share Our Chemistry with the Stars’. Quinn stated that “the word ‘iris’ comes from the Greek word for ‘rainbow’, and the colors celebrate individuality.” He added “In the middle, there’s the black void of the pupil, which recalls the mystery and uncertainty of existence.”


Newbondstreet_MQC_11
The collection also includes small leather goods. This piece features an orchid from the collection, “In the Night Garden.”

Newbondstreet_MQC_10
The colors of the flower and background are reversed on the other side of the same card holder.

There’s a lot to love and admire in this collection if you’re a fan of either Quinn or Dior. We don’t know how many pieces each item in the collection is limited to, but we do know that every item is sure to sell out quickly.
